Be looking at the covers and you can actually use a clear plastic cement to seal the top of the fixture this is a plumbers cement you can get from a hardware not use on the bulb as you will not be able to remove the bulb when it blows out..

My headlights is moisturing every time it rains or car wash

Normally the headlights are sealed and filled with an inert gas. The reason for the moisturizing may be due to damaged seal, that's causing it.
There is a large variety of attractive aftermarket covers available for the steering wheel; you can always opt for them.

Rain water leaking from under the bulk head drivers side

Hi Ajgannon,Take out the plastic cover where the wipers come through and clean out the rain water drain pipes. (on either side of the body, at the lowest point under the covers) that should clear the problem and stop you from taking a shower in the car.Regards Johngee10

The message window is flashing red and amber light and the letters PECUS S. What does this mean and what should I do about it? My car is a 2002 XKR

You probably driving a mobile swimming pool !

Under the rear seat and the trunk fills with rain water. This corrodes the ECU connections to the on-board control modules.

Common problem with British cars....with the weather in the UK, you'd have thought we could produce water tight cars by now !

Pool of water under rear of car

This can come from the exhaust. Modern cars use a catalytic converter to reduce emmissions and part of the process can produce water which get s pushed out with the exhaust gases. You mention how large a pool it is. Normal exhaust would produce only a small amount of water.

Another reason could be a bad seal on the trunk which is allowing rain water into the trunk which then drains onto the floor. Check your trunk carpeting for dampness.

sounds like water ingress to either a control module or the coil pack, check all control box locations eg footwells for water and then check the engine bay for loose or naked wires, dry and clean and possibly cover with a plastic bag etc and it should be fine.

Replace cabin pollen filter 2005 jaguar xkr

To get to the cabin air filter on an XK8 or XKR, you have to do the following steps (I know these steps sound in many cars there is just a simple cover in the engine compartment... but...): The air filter is under the black plastic cowl or plenum that is just under the windshield wiper blade connectors. To get to that, you must 1. carefully lift off the plastic covers that reveal screw heads. Remove the screws. 2. lift off the plastic covers that are on the top of each windshield wiper connector - under the cover you will then see a nut or bolt that has to be unscrewed. 3. Using a small puller (the puller that lifts off battery terminals works for this) lift off each windshield wiper and disconnect the rubber hose from each. 3. lift the car's front hood, and remove the plastic cowling (you also have to lift the side rubber runners and a rubber strap from each side that holds up the rubber drain hoses). Once you remove that plastic cowling, you will see the air filter plenum at the back of the engine area. The air filter should come vertically out of that. (This air filter does not exist on my 2000 and earlier editions...I am not sure what year Jaguar installed them.) Full instructions are on the Jaguar JTIS CD which you should obtain...look online for that.

Water is draining from under the passenger side dashboard

Does this happen when it rains or you go through the car wash? Or does it happen when running the A/C?
Let me know.

Low beam headlight is out on 2008 i290


Most probably you are seeing a lot of clutter in the bonnet to put your hand in and change it right? The best way sometimes is to unbolt the headlamp , move it out change the bulb and back in. But another way would typically be to remove the battery (and battery holder plastic box) or air box (whichever is in the way) and then you should be able to access the headlamp cover from behind. Anyways in both cases you should find a metal clip holding the bulb. Unclip the bulb whilst making sure that you dont touch the new bulb with you hands while putting it in. Press its metal clip in place again. and be sure to mount the plastic cover at the back properly so no water goes in the headlamp if its raining.

It was nice to help you :)

Best Regards
